Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 24 May 2018
I spent many years at the beer store. The pay was decent, the staff and managers were great, but unfortunately, trying to get promoted here was impossible. When it came down to it, I gave up working here after three years of learning to do my job, the full timers' job and the managers job, with promises of promotion continuously being given, but no action being taken.
Good Pay and Good to Work for
Will use you for as long as they can without promoting you
Cashier (Former Employee) – Huntsville, ON – 23 May 2018
I enjoyed working at the beer store, it was a fun place to work with different tasks you could always be doing. The hours were good, the store opened and closed at a reasonable time. I had great co--workers who were always kind and fun to work with.
Dedicated Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ottawa East, ON – 19 May 2018
Typical day consists of traffic flow of 400-600 customers returning empties and purchasing more beer. Learned all duties involved with day-to-day retail operations. Management had great employee relations, the workplace was typically an enjoyable atmosphere and culture. Hardest part would be being overwhelmed with empties on a day when we would be understaffed. Most enjoyable was interactions with the customers.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 16 May 2018
I showed up on time, worked for 8 hours, went home. They paid me minimum wage for backbreaking labour. The management had no idea what was going on below them. I can't say there was any "workplace culture" at all. The hardest part of the job was not losing it, and the most enjoyable part of the job was being paid (and quitting). The only redeemable thing about the job was that no matter how incompetent you were, you could get the job and keep it.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Dundas, ON – 1 May 2018
Though time spent at The Beer Store was minimal, management appeared engaged, friendly, and present at the business in order to help employees when needed. Employees appeared to have good relationships, and were very friendly with every customer.
Supervisor/Key Holder (Current Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 23 April 2018
A frequently understaffed store makes it tough to enjoy any part of the day. With more than enough physical work to do in the back of the store combined with a constant flow of customers leaves me exhausted by the end of the day.
late nights and weekend work is required by all staff regardless of seniority
11years with The Beer Store. Great people and great experiences. Looking forward to many more years with this company
